Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Phil Baroni Possibly Starring in MMA Werewolf Movie

Vampires: Old and Busted.
Werewolves: New Hotness?

According to ScreenJunkies, music video director Sxv’leithan Essex [sic] is teaming up with the producer of Rise of the Silver Surfer to bring us Growl, a story about an underground MMA fight club hunted by a family of werewolves. It’s like Fighting meets The Lost Boys meets My God This Movie Is Going to Be Terrible. Here’s the synopsis, via ShockTillYouDrop:

A traveling underground fight club called ‘The Brawlers’ arrive at a derelict ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. They meet the town’s only residents, the Maxilla family who want to buy on to the fight card. But the Maxilla family’s true intentions for the Brawler crew is soon revealed in teeth and claws. Some will be hunted, some will be feed, and some will become part of the family…whether they like it or not. Shooting begins in 2010 with a release anticipated for 2011. Early casting buzz is that Kiefer Sutherland is being courted to star.

Well sure, Mr. Lost Boy himself being a part of the production is cool and all, but does anyone else notice that the shadowy figure in the poster image on the right bears a striking resemblance to the New York Badass? We’ll let you know if Baroni can take a break from training for Amir Sadollah and beating up nerds long enough to confirm our suspicions.

I'm guessing Phil checked out his Wikipedia page, because the comment about being cast as a Wereguido is gone.

And WuTangClan, I didn't think that the Chef could outdo Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, but goddamn, the new album is fuckin' hot.

you guys are awesome!. I don't think I ever laughed this hard from reading comments. Now if we can only get Baroni to change his nickname to Wereguido and have Buffer say it. My head would explode.

Awesome lads....classic!

"Baroni will be appearing in the movie Growl, a werewolf style movie due to begin filming in 2010 for a 2011 release. His role has been revealed as a Wereguido due to his experience in rapidly becoming stronger and more muscular via unnatural means. Further information is due to be released soon."

It's still on wikipedia. Its near the bottom, above his fight record, under the heading Personal Life.
El Famous Burrito- September 9, 2009 at 12:26 pm
I gotta give Seoul Brother his props for first combining the terms Guido and werewolf into the word of the day: Wereguido.

Heh heh, it still cracks me up.
GetUpAndKill- September 9, 2009 at 12:25 pm
I don't see it on his wiki page?
NateGetsIrate- September 9, 2009 at 12:21 pm
So nobody liked Never Surrender? Cuz by the end of the movie I was convinced kids from white, upper-class high schools in Florida were bad ass.

But, seriously, it made me wonder if Florida has a bigger MMA scene than Orange County. Anyone (think they) know?

@ El Famous Burrito

You Sir, are on fire.....Wereguido...I will never look at Phil Bologna the same.

He is the best Werewolf Eva!!!

I'm sure it's a mis-print on the poster and it should say "the last sound you'll evah here"

I think I will follow my usual M.O. for movies featuring MMA fighters, regardless of whether I like them or not; download them and then regret it, but not as much as I would if I'd paid money for that shit.

I am now obessed with the term wereguido, it is cracking me up as well.

Anyone feel like a google bomb of wereguido at 3:30PM EST, wereguido in google treands could be amazing.
El Famous Burrito- September 9, 2009 at 11:31 am

Excellent wiki work, the both of you.

Seriously, I don't care what the real story is, these were-guido comments are cracking me up today.
agentsmith- September 9, 2009 at 11:17 am
Well played all around. Let's give ourselves a hand.
GMXer- September 9, 2009 at 11:16 am
I actually DID some research before posting and the one with the guy who "looks" like Baroni was a early poster design on his MySpace Page, the other one is the "official" release. There's no mention of Phil Baroni being looked at and if he was, he probably would have been on the official poster don't you think? And I don't think that's Phil Baroni, the guy on the poster looks to thin. Same Guido-like face but they are a dime a dozen. Hopefully, this movie kicks ass, but that remains to be seen.

@Terminator, BRILLIANT!

1/2 Wereolf + 1/2 Guido= Feel good movie of the summer.
Terminator- September 9, 2009 at 10:52 am

El Famous Burrito- September 9, 2009 at 10:40 am
AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Awesome job, man. I got a screen capture of that wiki page for The Hall of Fame :)
Viva Hate- September 9, 2009 at 10:24 am
PHEW! I was hoping someone saw it before it gets deleted.

I am must see this movie just for the idea of a wereguido.
